The art in this trailor is ridiculously bad, which adds to the desired effect. And the narrator is awesome... (the "booby hatch"?)

You gotta love that mind explosion. It's like the only part of the trailer that actually moves.

5 stars, guys, 5 stars.

Ok trailer for a matinee for a 'Marathon Of Fright', some nice imagery here, but there are better ones on this site that are a lot more interesting (the 'bugarama' spot for one).

This is a great trailer. And this is a great site. Im 16 and i just love old films and old tv shows. So this site is the best. I like the old tv comercials that they have here. THIS ONE IS GREAT.

Subject: Campy fun
Who else remembers "Chiller Theater" on Saturday nights? In the 60's, it seemed like every smaller TV station had a late night B-movie horror show hosted by some ghoulish local camp actor looking like a relative of the Munsters. Whatever happened to Gregory Graves, Dr. O'Cult, Zacherly, and all the Elvira/Vampira hostesses? Thumbs up for campy fun!

A marathon of fright but these are so sickly humorous I can't get scared. We maybe the monster in the trees. I love these "tongue in cheek" trailers. I think you have had to be a part of the "Friday Fright" era to really enjoy the wit behind it.

... what is the buzz about this one !
It is not even funny as a crappy piece.
Can anyone tell me, want to understand.
